"The Israelites had marched on dry land through the midst of the sea, with the water like a wall to their right and to their left. Thus the Lord saved Israel on that day from the power of the Egyptians." —Exodus 14:29-30
 

Where's the Red Sea in your life? Where must you make an act of faith and leave the enemy behind? Possibly your marriage, children, church, health, or finances are situations where you need to believe God for a miracle. Stretch out the hand of faith (Ex 14:21), put your foot in the water, and expect God to be God.

The Lord is our Savior. He didn't bring us this far to leave us. His love endures forever (Ps 118:1-4). "He's able." "He can make a way out of no way." He is the Way (Jn 14:6). Alleluia!

When the Red Sea is before you, the devil is behind you, and the mountains are around you, rejoice. There's a way out of trouble and a way into the promised land. Jesus is the Way! If you're in an impossible situation, remember "nothing is impossible with God" (Lk 1:37). If you're being pushed into a sea of problems, Jesus will either part the waters or have you walk on them. Rejoice! Problems are merely occasions for God to manifest His all-conquering love.

 
Prayer: Father, may I see problems as opportunities to claim victory.
Promise: "Whoever does the will of My heavenly Father is brother and sister and mother to Me." —Mt 12:50
Praise: The Stafford family promotes life by helping campaign for pro-life candidates for political office.
